EXCLUSIVE: Jordin Sparks Talks Losing Youngest Idol Title, Plus New Album

American Idol Alum Jordin Sparks is a little worried she may lose her crown as the youngest winner of the Foxx reality show. Sparks, who says she hasn’t been watching the show regularly due to her busy schedule, has her eye on some “amazing” young talents.

“I’ve seen a couple of episodes. I’ve been pretty busy, everything’s been insane. But I’ve watched a couple,” Sparks tells Singersroom. “I actually might lose my crown this year of [being] the youngest winner ever because they lowered the age and there have been some great 15, 16, 17 year olds that I’ve seen and they’re so amazing. So I wish them the best of luck and I hope that they do well.”

Sparks also tells Singersroom she has started work on her third studio album, the follow-up to ‘Battlefield.’

“I just started working on it. I was recording something today that might potentially be for a movie – the theme song of a new movie coming out, so I’m excited about that,” she says. “I’m working on new stuff. I saw Ryan Tedder and he gave me an amazing song that I’m really, really excited about. So we’ll see how it goes.”
